Mark Casey did not expect to fall in love. But from the minute he saw Joanne Lynch across the garden of a Dublin pub, it seemed that nothing else was possible. They soon start a relationship that is as chaotic and exciting as the city they share.But Mark is guiltily drawn back to his family and the land they have farmed for generations, as he discovers the truth behind a feud that threatens to destroy this passionate love affair. Just as they appear to have brought the warring factions together, one single tragic moment undoes everything. Solace is a beautiful, breathtaking story about the city and the country, the old and the new, the thrill of new love and the inescapable bond between parents and children.
